Riparian rescue - Glenarty Catchment
protecting riparian zones from weeds
Native vegetation along waterways particularly in agricultural catchments play and important role in nutrient stripping as well as creating important habitat and corridors for native fauna.
The Glenarty is a productive mixed use agricultural catchment and the creekline is an important corridor for wildlife and to support healthy waterways. Weed control along its waterways is considered vital to protect the environmental values of the creekline and reduce the spread of weeds. Weed control will focus on wet area weeds such as blackberry, arum lily and weedy wattle species.
Landholders along the Glenarty catchment waterway will be eligible for a 50% funding incentive for weed control works along the riparian zone and associated bushland, with the LCDC coordinating the weed control works.
